    It will work with a small circle as shape but not with your shape have a good look at Seant's image, I started to do some code for you that will invoke the SLICE command then your handrail will work. I or you need to add a 1/2 angle for the rise and then it should be good I was looking at drawing the pline for the vertical cut plane then tilting it using Rotate3d for the 1/2 angle, get the 3 new co-ords and use SLICE, I have some other stuff I must do 1st.

    I tested on your dwg and it worked for the Z same rails ie 90 flat corner.

    Well I be darned. I opened up the drawing in AutoCAD 2014 Professional and it swept the extrusion with no trouble. I'm confused as to why 2018 will not handle it and other versions will. One would think it's the other way around considering the reason I moved to 2018 was to be able to open some STEP files a client sent me which 2014 would not open. But I do see the conflicting geometry in the corners which form the 90° corners and then transition to the slope of the stairs.
    It's deja vu, all over again.
